ANSP Safety Performance

Ireland ranks very highly for its safety performance as an Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP). In terms of one of the key measures of ANSP safety performance, in November 2016, the IAA was ranked highest out of 47 States who participated in the EUROCONTROL / CANSO survey: "EUROCONTROL Effectiveness of Safety management (EoSM/CANSO Eurocontrol Standard of Excellence (SOE)"

State Safety Plan 2017 - 2020

160730 IAA State Safety Plan 2017-2020 -page-001
The primary purpose of the Irish State Safety Programme is to ensure the continuous improvement of safety standards in Ireland. This is achieved by focusing our resources in the areas that present the greatest risk to aviation safety and implementing actions that will best mitigate these risks.

As part of the State Safety Programme the IAA produces the State Safety Plan (SSp) for Ireland.

The purpose of the SSp is to outline to all stakeholders where the IAA Safety Regulation Division will target resources in the next four years in order to fulfill the State Safety Programme objective of reducing accidents and incidents.

State Safety Programme 2015

  
State-Safety-Programme

This State Safety Programme 2015 introduces the objectives of, framework for, and implementation approach to the State Safety Programme for Ireland (SSP). A State Safety Programme is a management system for the regulation and administration of safety by the State.

The implementation of the SSP in Ireland is commensurate with the size and complexity of the state’s civil aviation system and it requires coordination among a small number of different authorities responsible for the aviation functions of the State, including the Department of Transport, Tourism andSport, Irish Met Services, the Air Accident Investigation Unit of Ireland and the Irish Aviation Authority. In addition it requires co-ordination with international organisations such as ICAO, the European Commission and the European Aviation Safety Agency.

This document describes the State Safety Programme for Ireland in accordance with the four components that form the fundamentals of an SSP. It is structured in accordance with guidance contained in ICAO Doc 9859 Safety Management Manual, 3rd Edition. Each component is subdivided into elements that comprise the processes or activities undertaken by Ireland to manage safety. These eleven elements combine prescriptive and performance-based approaches and support the implementation of Safety Management Systems by service providers.

ICAO Universal Safety Oversight Audit Result

The latest information available from the Continuous Monitoring Approach (CMA) audit (as part of ICAO Universal Safety Oversight) for Ireland ranks the state amongst the best in the world for civil aviation safety oversight. This audit ranked Ireland second in Europe and fourth amongst some of the major aviation States worldwide, as illustrated in the tables below.

The safety oversight audit of Ireland assesses the level of implementation of almost 11,000 ICAO Standards and Recommendations (SARPS) and related ICAO procedures, and the overall audit score is expressed in terms of the percentage of  “Effective Implementation” (% EI).  ICAO has found that Ireland has effectively implemented 94.01% of the applicable SARPS in the State.

Effectiveness of Safety Management

The European Commission has established a performance scheme for air navigation service providers, with the goal of contributing to the achievement of the objectives of the Single European Sky project. In the key performance area of safety, the European Commission has established a key performance indicator, which is the effectiveness of safety management. This is a measure of the maturity of the attitudes, processes and procedures involved in the management of safety within Member States. An agreed and consistent methodology is used by the Member States to attribute a score to the indicator. This score is then verified by EASA.

For 2014, Ireland had the highest effectiveness of safety management scores of all Member States.
